The Manchester Pusher is a European legend involving a supposed uncaptured serial killer responsible for killing up to 80 people. His main method is ,just like his name, pushing people into the canals to drown.

The legends[]

The Manchester Pusher has been said to be active since 2008. Specifically in Manchester, U.K.. his victims have been found drowning in local canals used for for various purposes. The police have denied any claim of this being a possible serial killer. That has not stopped people from suspecting that this is the work of one though.

Possible explanations[]

- serial killer

- a bizzare coincidence involving accidental drowning

trivia[]

- Locals have started petitioning for guard rails to be placed to prevent drowning.

- this case bares a strange similarity to that of The Smiley Face Killer in the USA. Both were unconfirmed killers who drowned their victims in bodies of water as a means of killing them. Both are also cases in which police denied any foul play.
